america anchor and former traveling press secretary for the obama campaign jen socky. this is the speed of the fiscal cliff negotiations. blink and you just might miss exactly nothing. while talks between speaker boehner and president obama over the past three days have been shrouded in secrecy, we've learned there have been two offers put on the table. the white house sent boehner a proposal on monday calling for $1.4 trillion in tax revenue, $200 billion less than the original offer. might that seal the deal? >> the president's called for $1.4 trillion worth of revenue. that cannot pass the house or the senate. >> okay then. the speaker's office responded with a deal of its own. yesterday it included precisely the same amount of revenue from the original proposal, $800 billion, which indicates there may have been concessions else where. a democratic source close to the white house tells nbc news the proposal included a permanent extension of the bush tax cuts. that is highly unlikely to fly, given the hard line the president has taken on tax rates and what he told barbara walters in a
to this morning, including a new law in the car capital of america, as republicans in michigan passed right-to-work legislation despite large union protests. we'll have the governor's reaction, straight ahead. >>> also, north korea successfully launched a long-range rocket, putting an unidentified object into orbit and putting the region on high alert. >>> but first, we have a developing story back here in the states. in a suburb of portland, oregon, three people are dead after a gunman went on a shooting rampage inside a mall filled with holiday shoppers. witnesses say it was a chaotic scene inside the mall as the man reportedly dressed in body armor and wearing a white mask opened fire with a high-power rifle. this morning, investigators are trying to learn more about the motive and the suspect who police say shot himself to death. nbc's jay gray joins us from portland with the latest details. jay? >> reporter: hey, there. yeah, bill, just a tragedy unfolded here yesterday afternoon and mall's still on lockdown early this morning as local, state and federal agents continue to comb the are
in america for americans, should be dealt with. one that some people want to put on the table really doesn't deal with the deficit at all, and that's social security. so before we even get into this discussion tonight, let's just understand or anybody that cares to take on this issue that in dealing with the fiscal cliff, social security is not the problem. the deficit is not caused by social security. social security has never been and in its present form, will not be part of the deficit issue. it's separate and apart. it is a special program. has its own source of revenue. has its own trust fund and isn't running the deficit at all and has not run a deficit. so let's put social security to the side and say, yes, in the years ahead, maybe even next year, but probably three to four years out, social security will be dealt with, as it must, because we will have to make adjustments. but that is really not the debate about the deficit, sequestration or the fiscal cliff. coming back to the fiscal cliff, let's take up one of the very big programs and i'm not talking about the department of defe
, but their fortunes will turn again? or is this really the end of real powerful unionism in america? joining us now is mary kay henry, president of the service employees international union who is born and raised in the great state of michigan. miss henry, thank you very much for taking the time. >> glad to be with you, ezra on this incredible day for working people all across the nation. >> so tell me what is incredible about it. what comes next, not just in michigan, but for american labor? >> i think you just told the story beautifully. i understand there were two 90-year-old flint sit-down strike areas the rally in lansing today. and they stood up in the 1930s to build the american middle class, as we once knew it in the '50s and '60s in this country. and since 1972, workers have been losing wage gains that were won when 30% of us had the right to bargain and lift wages for everybody. and i think snyder is action both decides that michigan needs to become a low wage economy, where you have to string together three jobs in order to make ends meet, and eliminate the remain
the 24th state in america with a right-to-work law. despite protests of angry union supporters, state lawmakers passed the legislation. this means both private and public workers do not have to pay union fees. and republican governor rick snyder quickly signed the bills, calling them "pro worker" and "pro michigan," but opponents say the move weakens organized labor and will mean lower wages. >>> last night on "politics nation," democratic congressman gary peters of michigan told the reverend al sharpton that governor snyder did an about face on this issue. take a listen. >> it is particularly hard to explain, because we had a governor who repeatedly said that this was not on his agenda, this would be very divisive for our state. he continually said that for a couple years, and then immediately after the election had a really sharp about-face and then just jammed it through without, as you mentioned, without any hearings or public input. i was able to meet with him with other members of the congressional delegation. he sat and listened to us, but he never really responded, and when he
a debt the size of our economy. you cannot solve america's problems. you cannot leave the kind of country behind for our children and grandchildren that our parents left behind for us until you make the entitlement programs meet the demographics of our country. we have known that for years. when are we ever going to make those kind of decisions? we will have another opportunity later, when the debt ceiling issue arrives. when are we going to make this decision? that is our question. this whole discussion -- and admittedly, the president has some advantages, being one messenger. you would think this whole discussion was about nothing other than raising the top two has tax rates. -- two tax rates. that has literally nothing to do with solving the problem. i have been waiting for the president to become serious about solving the problem. i do not know when he is going to become serious. it sounds to me like we are running out of time. we will take our cues from the speaker as to when they are able, if they are able, to reach some kind of agreement. >> the democrats have 50 or more votes. a g
't expect that during a football game >> it's nfl sunday. it's half time. god bless america is playing in the background. do i really want bob costas giving me a dissertation on the second amendment? i want to watch football >> jon: really? that's when i go take a piss. but okay. yes an nfl half time show is no time to talk about violence in the nfl. it's a time to watch endless slow-motion replays of that today's hardest hits. that was a great hit. yeah, i think the guy's brain came out of his ear hole on that one. sucking it up like a man. of course he'll never be the same again. half time isn't the right time. what about at a press conference? what about at a press conference like after the aurora shooting s when the mayor of new york called for an examination of gun laws? >> the body is not even out of the theater before he started to jump into this debate. i think there is some level of political protocol that you need to have in a tragedy like this where you wait. be quiet for 24 hours at least. >> jon: that's clearly in that situation it's not where it is being discussed but whe
luther king, seen here, marched with one of america's most accomplished labor leaders, walter ruther, seen here with his hand on king's arm. >> you're young, aren't you? ruther. >> today's protests are reminiscent of an eight decade old fight. in the coming months, that fight could turn into a citizens initiative, repeal, lawsuits or even a recall of elected officials. michigan's law goes into effect in a little over three months. >> do we have any indication because obviously this is a movement, which states might be next? >> take a look at michigan, seen as the center of the labor movement. even the top four union members states could be at risk. at the top you have new york with one in four workers a union member, followed by alaska, hawaii and washington. the number you see on the screen right here, which is the advocacy money, that could be what's changing these traditional union states. according to the nation, we look at those numbers from 2008 to 2011, right to work money was $18 million. pro-union, just $2 million. >> thanks so much. always good to see you. that does it for

[ applause ] according to nau poll, 55% disapproval rating in kentucky. 37% approval rating. kentucky democratic voters express their disa desire to see ashley judd run in the primaries for 2014. rock on, girl. nay-sayer that you are expressed you didn't think that's going to happen but they just did -- i can't remember what you call it. whatever, you know. preliminary polling. judd trails him 47% to 43%. nothing has even happened yet. >> but she hasn't actually campaigned or made speeches. that's just sheer name recognition. >> stephanie: it is a great start against the minority leader. i think it's awesome. >> well, you know. >> stephanie: i say rock on! i just like the fact he's starting to sound more and more like jim's impression of him. >> i'm not exactly going to run again. it's more of a slow crawl. >> stephanie: exactly. he doesn't even -- he can't even run is the point. how hard would it be for ashley judd to catch him? she's
